Pomegranate offered a very large fresh fruit and vegetable section. (all photos will enlarge when clicked on)
Many pre-packaged meat, poultry, and fish selections were available, as well as fresh lamb, veal, bison, brisket, turkey, chicken, duck, pickled meat, sausage, ribs, baby chicken, sweetbread, filet mignon, capons, organic meat and poultry. There is also a sushi bar that offers nigiri, sashimi, sushi rolls.
The appetizing section offers slabs of nova and belly lox and chunks of sable, whole whitefish and chubs, sixteen kinds of herring; fifty olive varieties, fresh salads, fish salads, pre-packaged dips and salads, marinated vegetables and seventy types of specialty cheeses. It was nostalgic to see the old fashioned large pickle barrels with many assorted types of fresh pickles to chose from.
It was an interesting experience for us to walk up and down the aisles of Pomegranate, and browse the offerings on the shelves. We are not Jewish, but we found that we were familiar with most of the foods and we were curious to try some of those that we never had before. We are both admitted "foodies" and enjoy trying new things. It certainly is nice to have another fine ethnic market in Brooklyn to chose from!
